AMC has announced two pilot orders at once for the first time, opting to greenlight a pair of murder-mystery pilots, reports Joe Adalian in New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.
Both projects will be in contention to debut in 2013, the story says. One of the projects comes from "Water for Elephants" writer Richard LaGravenese and "Justified" producer Tony Goldwyn, while the other one is based on a 2006 British miniseries, the story notes.
The untitled LaGravenese-Goldwyn project is a legal thriller, tracking a district attorney who uncovers new evidence in a murder case, the story says. Goldwyn will direct the pilot.
The other project, called "Low Winter Sun," is a Detroit-based show that tracks the murder of a police officer, the story notes.
